“At around noon every day she showed up with a cup of coffee. It was so warm and helped elevate the day. The reality of it is I don’t think she truly understood how she had helped me. It wasn’t only the coffee that cheered me up but rather the presence of her smile as she walked through the door. The light that entered the room with the simplicity of a cup of coffee. The small things that count and like I said, it wasn’t just the coffee.
Along with her smile she had brought joy, cheer and a gleeful attitude. The aura that had been brought into the room was like no other. A bad day suddenly turned into a day I’d rather never miss. The impact she had, she had no idea. Along with the coffee came another blessing in disguise. The question she always asked me.
“How are you today?”
How I loved it. The interaction with a bit of interest in my own well being something not many seemed to care for. Behind those eyes was a soul that had to of blessed the lives of all the others she had encountered.
How I wonder could someone be so beautiful to make the day of others without batting an eye to the small deed that was done which held such an importance within the bigger picture of life.
The Small Things That Count
There seems to be this common thread among those who truly make in impact on other’s lives. The ones that freely go about giving back without even noticing what they are doing. One small deed could change someones entire perspective on life. We are all creatures in need of social interaction to begin with. When you show a general interest in other’s well being you aren’t only doing them a favor as so much in changing their day.
Picking that piece of garbage off the ground as you get out of the car does make a difference in the world. It shows the universe that you appreciate her beauty. In any attempt to make the world a better place for us all because we understand that the next person needs this earth as much as the next. Gratitude is a minimal task we constantly overlook.
The distance a simple thank you can take one person on to the next. If you happen to cheer one person up, that one person could cheer up another two. We could potentially make one another feel welcome in a world that, under the current circumstances seem cold, a much warmer place to live in.
Question For The Day
What small things come in large packages for you in your life? How often are you able to really show gratitude towards the small things in life?
Many deeds go unnoticed and that’s okay. Most of what we have to offer goes without applause which helps humble us into a role that we should be playing already. Society is a delicate process that we all participate in. The man who let me go first at the stop sign today, thank you. You helped me be on time for work because I had spilled my coffee on the way out of the front door. These are the things I am talking about. Make the small things that count actually count. Keep a score in your own mind what you have given and received.
Speak to the universe nicely and she will treat you even better. What you put out is what you get back in.
